    Back to Pool School with you!

    CYA doesn't just disappear as a general rule. If you've never added any, of course you'll read zero. Have you ever added CYA (Stabilizer), Dichlor shock powder, or trichlor pucks?

    If you haven't added any, you need to. And the simplest way is to buy stabilizer, tie it in a sock, and hang it in front of the return.

    You need the water depth as well to calculate volume. Pool Calculator can do all the math for you, down at the bottom. Then, once you have volume, put that in the box at the very top of the colored chart. Then where it says CYA, enter zero now and 30 target. It will tell you how much CYA you need. You want to aim low on CYA because its easy to add more, hard to get rid of if you overshoot. Just assume it;s there, don't bother testing for it for a week.
